Amash said that while confrontation might make some of his colleagues uncomfortable, it’s important to engage face to face and to listen “without any screens.”

“These are people you represent, and you should be willing to engage with them and discuss ideas and learn,” he said in an interview.

Looking forward to a great discussion in Battle Creek. More town halls are being planned all across #MI03. I will hold additional evening and weekend town halls in the coming weeks and months for those who can't attend this meeting.

Honored to be ranked the most fiscally conservative member of Congress. Thanks to the Coalition to Reduce Spending for collecting and analyzing all this data on our voting records.
“Most of my colleagues, unfortunately, go with the flow; they want to stick to their comfort zones in many cases,” Amash told POLITICO in a brief interview after the event. “This doesn’t make me uncomfortable. I like to be here, hearing the different perspectives. I’m not afraid of my positions.”

Blessed to represent an amazing, passionately engaged community. I'm taking these town halls on the road to all parts of #MI03. Stay tuned!
President Trump today endorsed stealing property from law-abiding Americans who haven't been charged with—let alone convicted of—any crime. He also said, "We'll destroy his career," about a conservative Texas state senator who opposes this unconstitutional civil asset forfeiture.

My staff and I will work to introduce a bill to end civil asset forfeiture. I always will stand up for limited...

I voted no on #HRes5, the resolution comprising the House rules for the 115th Congress.

I'm pleased that the package includes several positive changes to the standing rules and orders, including a provision from my friend Rep. Bill Posey that builds upon the requirement that certain legislative measures be available in formats that show how they would change existing law (an effort that I've...

You may have read or seen the unhinged Andrew McCarthy op-ed that people have been sharing in support of President Trump's executive order. Here's a good response that doesn't even cover all the things McCarthy gets wrong.

By nearly every measure, #SConRes3 is the worst budget I've seen as a congressman. It grows the national debt by trillions of dollars. Check out the comparison chart. The House vote is scheduled for Friday. There's still time to let your representative in Congress know what you think about it.
"This may be the worst budget ever seriously considered by Congress."
